The Nash announces the creation of a new ensemble designed to develop artists in the Neo-Soul genre.
Led by pianist, educator and artist Carly Bates, the Neo-Soul Ensemble will meet virtually on Mondays & Thursdays at 7:30 pm from June 7 – July 1 preparing remote recordings of songs emblematic of the neo-soul style.
Neo-soul is a genre of Black American Music that artists such as Erykah Badu, Jill Scott, D’Angelo, Lauryn Hill, and Maxwell shaped in the 1980s and 90s. Referring to a revival of the soul and R&B music tradition that came before it, neo-soul feeds the soul with its pocket grooves, thick harmonic textures, and poetry.
Interested musicians and vocalists are invited to apply with those accepted to the program to pay a $200 tuition fee.
